Firstly, congratulations on your new shop. It’s gorgeous!
Thank you. I used to be a regular customer in Cowbridge. It has a great mix of independent shops and I believe Enchante will bring something a little bit special to the town.

What do you offer your customers?
Trade Price Sofas has two warehouses which supply sofas across the UK. I decided to open Enchante Sofas and Interiors as we had started to attract celebrity customers such as former footballer Rio Ferdinand, Katie Price, as well as Holly Hagan and Charlotte Crosby from the hit reality TV show Geordie Shore. I wanted somewhere a bit more glamorous that these celebrities and prospective customers from the Vale of Glamorgan and beyond could visit.

What’s your background?
I’ve been in the furnishing industry for nearly thirty years. We sell sofas and furnishings to discerning customers across the UK. I also sell matching curtains, pelmets, beds, pillows and dining chairs. I can even build a TV into the back of your sofa or bed if the client wishes. Anything is possible. All I need is a gem of an idea and my imagination gets to work.

Tell us about Rupert the rocking horse…
I first saw a beautiful rocking horse around 27 years ago when I used to visit Xantippe (sadly no longer trading). I’ve always loved rocking horses as they have a lot of history; but the horse carried a high price tag. I always called in whenever I visited to see if he was still there and one day learned that he’d had been sold. When we decided to open in Cowbridge, I wanted to find a rocking horse to bring a smile to my store just like the one I so wanted in Xantippe. I found one in Swansea which had been there for 27 years. I called the gentleman who had bought him for his children and asked him if the horse had a story. His response was ‘not really my dear apart from I bought him 27 years ago from a little shop in Cowbridge called Xantippi, I was amazed! He now stands proudly in my shop and is the talk of Cowbridge – Welcome home Rupert!
